The relation of fasting and 2-hour serum insulin to the risk for fatal cardiovascular disease was examined in men and women without diabetes.
Between 1984 and 1987,80% of all surviving local members of the Rancho Bernardo Study cohort had measures of insulin and glucose levels obtained before and after a 75-g oral glucose tolerance test.
Over the next 5 years, there were 24 cardiovascular disease deaths among 538 men and 21 cardiovascular disease deaths among 705 women.
Fasting insulin was unrelated to cardiovascular disease death in men or women ; 2-hour insulin was significantly lower in men (but not in women) who died from cardiovascular disease.
